Jenny Joseph wrote a poem entitled Warning. Many women are probably familiar with the first line ‘When I am an old woman I shall wear purple’. This appealing verse addresses the issue of restrictions resulting from living responsibly stating this is what we can successfully do as we age. The list includes “childish” things such as eating those samples displayed in stores, releasing the alarm, wearing our slippers outdoors when it rains, picking other people’s flowers and wearing the color purple.

These thoughts surely cross the minds of many women as they bustle about “doing the right thing.” Yet, the poem is also a battle call. It is a reminder that we don’t have to wait until we are old and considered eccentric before we enjoy some aspects of life. Among these things is wearing bright colors.

A quick glance around reveals some older women do seem to be more colorful now. They, like so many youngsters, used to play it safe wearing a solid color, like black, from tip to toe. Today, they absolutely seem to flaunt brilliant shads of oranges, reds and even purples. Yet, while the woman in Ms. John’s verse is looking forward to clashing her purple dress with a red hat, these women tastefully combine their stunning shades. They wear them with grace and style. They carefully and elegantly dare to celebrate all the magnificent colors found in nature.

Women who decide to wear bright and bold colors do not have to abandon good taste. In certain accessories, for example, silk scarves and shawls the right mix of colors looks absolutely stunning. It does not matter whether the design is floral, abstract, checkered or striped hand dyed scarves and hand painted shawls consist of brilliantly harmonized colors. They always succeed in providing an air of chic sophistication and style to anyone who wears them. What is also important is this. You do not have to wait until you are old. These stunning accessories look superb on females of any age.  As long as you team them with the right outfit, the effect, whether matching or contrasting both discerning and stunning.

It is incorrect to say only the old can wear hand painted silk scarves and shawls and the color purple. They are suitable for both young and old females. They rate high as a must-have fashion item for your closet. The vast availability of gorgeous distinctive designs, provide something for everyone. Whether you are 18 or 80, traditional or highly celebrity fashion conscious, you can find one to suit your needs to quickly transform your outfit.

It is rare that our carefully laid plans go exactly as intended. When life throws us a curve, it can result in welcome change, diversity and instant impulsive fun. Sometimes, however, the curve ball results in less pleasant experiences.

If an off the cuff invitation arrives when you are not appropriately dressed, it can be very frustrating. You could excuse yourself then late wish you hadn’t. You could also arrive “as is” and spend the rest of the night feeling as if you don’t fit in. You can’t always plan for these occasions with an outfit that is “just right” stashed away in the trunk of your car. Even if you have a change of clothing, the time to do so may not be available. Yet, if you happen to be carrying a silk shawl or scarf, you can make over a standard outfit into something frivolous, quirky and suitable for bar or club hopping or into the height of sophistication and class for an up-scale restaurant and/or a night out at the theater. In just a few seconds, you can tie, drape and co-ordinate around your body, head, neck or shoulders creating an entirely fresh and new look for any event.

This is not the only good reason for stashing a silk shawl or scarf in your car’s glove box. They are also good in case of an emergency. If you become trapped in a car and the temperatures dip, a silk scarf can help save your life. Silk ranks high among those fabrics with natural heat retaining qualities. Silk fabric is also finely constructed meaning it is easy to tuck away in your car’s glove box or in your purse. As a result, you can employ it when the temperatures dip below freezing, mimicking the actions of the World War I and aviators who implicitly trusted their silk scarves for warmth when flying high. If children are involved, keep them warm by wrapping them in your silk scarf or shawl. It will help them retain body heat.

It may seem frivolous to purchase a stunning silk scarf just to keep it in your car for a possible emergency. Yet, is you do have one on hand, you can apply it to take care of a variety of needs. These silk accessories are good for practical warmth as well as decorative uses. At home or in the car, the presence of a sumptuous cozy, stunning hand dyed silk scarf or hand painted shawl silk scarf can come to your aid when you want and need it.
